A keto diet meal plan is what enables your body to enter ketosis
It focuses on limiting carbohydrates intakes and upping fat, and some protein.
More on this in a minute.
This is pretty much what qualifies a diet to be a ketogenic diet.
But, let’s backtrack a bit in case you’re not familiar with the keto diet plan and menu before we get started.
What is a Keto Diet?
A keto diet is a low-carb eating plan designed to drive your body into a state called ketosis.
Ketosis is a natural metabolic state that involves the body producing ketones out of fat. It then uses them for energy instead of carbohydrates.
Your body only goes into ketosis when carbohydrates intake is low. This is the main purpose of a ketogenic diet.
This translates to:
- 60-75% of your calories from fat.
- 15-30% of your calories from protein.
- 5-10% of your calories from carbs.
